Palm Reader have sadly announced today that they’ve decided to end the band.

The beloved Nottingham noisemongers will be playing a bunch of final shows in July, before finishing up with a performance at their “spiritual home” of 2000trees.

“With a heavy heart, we have decided to end our time together as Palm Reader,” they say. “We all have very different priorities now, compared to the lives we led when we formed the band in 2011. We collectively feel that ending Palm Reader now rather than simply ‘going on hiatus’ is the right thing for us to do as we grow as people and our lives move forward in different directions.

“These last 13 years have been extraordinary, and we can’t thank you enough for being on this journey with us. It has meant more to us than you’ll ever know.

“We will be embarking on one last run of UK dates and we hope you can make it out and give us the honour of playing for you one last time. Our final show will be on Friday, July 12 at 2000trees Festival – which we’ve always considered our spiritual home. We hope to see you there.”
